A gorgeous cabin in the woods-esque homestay, Deep Forest Farms near Kolad in Handewadi Village is our dream getaway, and it’s just three hours away. Located approximately 14 kilometres away from Kolad, it’s easily 145 kilometres from Mumbai, and Pune. If you’re coming from Mumbai, via Imagica it’ll take you around three hours or so.
Just like its name, this 13-acre farm stay is nestled inside dense forest, next to the calming sounds of Kundalika river. If you’re the kinds to unwind and embrace all that’s there in nature, then this one is for you. The stay has two rooms at the offer, that can accommodate eight people at the maximum. They have a river room (which is the farmhouse), and tent in the woods (basically a permanent tent just metres away from the farmhouse).
They’ve got hammocks hung in the yard, and there’s a lot more that you can do here. A few fun activities like trekking, walking on nature trails, photographing the nature, cycling around or even go fishing. And of course, with its proximity to Kolad, there’s always an option for you to go river rafting in the river (we’re telling you, this is the getaway you need).
Their packages start from INR 3,500 and upwards. Oh, and you can book long stay as well if you're looking to work from there. You can just peace out and disconnect from the world here. They provide everything here if you’re looking for comfort. If you don’t have your own vehicle, they can arrange for a pick up too.
